Somehow I doubt this is the film face Norway really wanted to show the world....
7 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Okay, granted, my knowledge of Norway and movies pretty much begins and end with Sonja Henie, but this short could be seen as an addition to the international ultra-black-humor canon as exemplified by, say, Belgium's "Man Bites Dog" about which I had some bleak things to say in 2005; my review was titled "Does Belgium actually need to exist?" One could ask the same thing about Norway after seeing "Angst...." Okay, a gloomy man and an even gloomier woman live in a complete crap-hole; she never seems to leave, he only seems to leave to go murder people with a meat cleaver. (He doesn't seem to have a job, buy maybe Norway has a generous welfare state like it's neighbor Sweden.) Apparently they used to kill together, but now only he does. (All cinematic serial killers seem to live in this alternate universe where they're always conveniently alone with their victims and no one ever sees them and they never leave any evidence behind.) In one of the few uses of dialog in the short, he asks her if she would like to go out with him again, is met with stony silence and if I recall right, never talks to her again. Eventually he gets tired of her (exactly why is unclear), files for "serial killer divorce" i.e. chops her up, spruces himself and the place up somewhat, lights some candles and has her for dinner. The end. Obviously if these people weren't killers there'd be nothing of interest whatsoever about them, but I think this whole "banality of evil" shtick is really really old by now, and in fact was nine years ago when I reviewed "Man Bites Dog" (at least here there's no "movie within a movie" gimmick). So let's start an on-line petition, folks: from now on movie killers have to be held to the same standards of being compellingly watchable as characters are who just "ordinary people." Who's with me? ---Okay, never mind. As for whether "Angst..." is worth 20 minutes of your life: with enough beer and maybe some classic Rob Zombie music playing---if you don't have any classic Rob Zombie music at home, why not?---sure, maybe, but now that the channel seems to have yanked it, I have no idea where it would be seen....By the way, since the man is seen smoking countless cigarettes, maybe it would have been fun if the auteur had added a flash-forward of him dying of lung cancer in some gloomy hospital---at government expense, of course...
